I hate when people do things behind my back for me and don’t tell me about it until the last minute and the felt they should of done it and its the best “for me”.
I’m in control of my own self and i don’t need your help, especially when you think its the “best” for me and tell me the last minute.

After the South American shows, Bill apparently was going to continue on in the band, but decided not to do it before the band actually got to recording a new album, mostly due to a schism that developed between Tony & Geezer (and Gloria Butler from what I’ve heard) over issues relating to the 1994 tribute album “Nativity in Black”. Bill had apparently finally gotten over his issue of Ozzy not being there. Over the years in many comings and goings of Bill Ward in Sabbath, he has maintained that one of the reasons he keeps leaving is that it never quite felt like Black Sabbath to him without Ozzy. Bill had stated around this time that since Ozzy had finally made it clear he was no longer interested in working with Black Sabbath (after the post Costa Mesa attempts at reunion), he was OK with being in Sabbath without Ozzy. But when Geezer left, Bill did too.
Geezer leaves to go work with Ozzy on his 95 release, Ozzmosis, as well as his own G//Z/R project. Geezer quite publicly slams Sabbath & Iommi after leaving, stating that he had no intention on ever playing with Black Sabbath again (yeah, that stuck, Geez).
Bill was asked later what he thought of his playing these gigs, as they included several songs Sabbath did while Bill was not in the band. Bill apparently said that he had no problems at all playing other songs (like Cozy Powell’s drum bits in ‘Headless Cross’), but the only mistake that he made live was his own lines in songs like Iron Man & War Pigs. Pretty funny story.
(The is one of the three South American shows during the
Cross Purposes tour wear Bill Ward was brought out of
retirement. A must-have for all Sabbath collectors.)
